love breeds love

love breeds love

If you show love, kindness, and goodwill toward someone, it will typically cause them to behave in a similar way to yourself or to others. I feel like we as a people are losing the notion that love breeds love these days, choosing instead to attack or criticize other people as our default reaction. I've always taken the stance that love breeds love, and, in my own experience, anyway, it has always borne out to be true.
